40 actors who were way too young or too old for their roles

StarsInsider Logo By Stars Insider of StarsInsider | Slide 2 of 44: On the 20th anniversary of the release of 'Spy Kids,' actress Carla Gugino is reflecting on being way too young for her role. The 'Gunpowder Milkshake' actress co-starred alongside Antonio Banderas as retired spies with pre-teen children, but Gugino wasn't exactly a convincing age for her character.“I was at least ten years too young for the role because I was supposed to have been a spy for ten years, then had two children who were now 10 and 12. I was 28 years old," Gugino told Variety. "I think it only hurt me a little because people did think I was older than I was for a period of time." Still, she says she wouldn't have given up the experience for anything. "It was just this little tiny movie we made alone in Austin and it became a phenomenon that continues.”
